Do you mind sharing the cost to wrap the hood? I'm trying to decide between wrap and paint. Thanks!
I paid $250 for the hood wrap in San Diego. I also had the painted trim surrounding the grill wrapped for another $80. I removed and installed the grill trim and hood vents myself to save some money. Both are easy to accomplish. The satin black wrap is reversible, just peel it off. It will reportedly hold up for about 5 years. A good paint job will last 10+ years but will cost twice as much. Since that picture was taken I had the same wrap shop add some silver matching wrap over the headlights. I liked the looks of the change after seeing other vans including @Wrinkledpants. The added silver pieces cost $70.

Looks great, I'm going down the same path. After crossing the cascades 5 times this winter my hood looks pretty bad. Going to have the rocker panels done as well. Trying to find a black star like you have but everyone is sold out. If MBZ was smart they'd make that a $200 option.

Do you know if satin is the same as "flat"black?

Satin is in between flat black and semi-gloss. I was concerned flat black shows dirt and smudges and does not clean up as well as Satin.

Both the front and rear MB emblems can be removed. There are a few permanent, anti-theft, tabs that can be snipped off from behind. The remaining tabs can be depressed to release the emblem. I coated mine with Plasticoat.
